We know that taking legal action is often the last thing on your mind when it comes to an animal attack. You may be concerned with your recovery and medical expenses, and you may be confused over what action you should take, especially if the dog is owned by a family member or friend. Fortunately, insurance is often called in to pay for the medical costs and other expenses associated with animal attacks, so the owner may have to pay very little out of pocket to cover your costs. We can help you with claims involving:
- Property Owners – If the owner of a property has a dangerous animal on the premises, they may be held liable for injuries that the animal causes
- Landlords – If a landlord is aware that a tenant owns a dangerous animal and the animal attacks someone, the injured party may be able to hold the landlord responsible
- Parents of Minors – If a dog owned by someone under the age of 18 attacks someone, the minor’s parents may be held accountable for the attack
- Guardians or Keepers – Anyone who is responsible for the care of an animal may be held liable if the animal attacks someone. This includes animal sitters, shelter owners, and the pound
